    Hello Michał,

    With reference to your post asking for more information on Zygmunt Zając, I have found nothing for him listed on Ancestry.com etc. , I do know that Artur has a book listing all those Polish Soldiers awarded the Monte Cassino Cross that went back to Poland after the end of the war. Perhaps Artur might be able to answer your question.

    Anyway Best of luck

    Andrzej
